Discussion: I LOVE Easter Eggs!

This Week’s Topic: Easter Eggs

Well, I love dying and hunting for eggs each spring, but I'm not talking about those Easter eggs. You know how Disney animators "hide" other Disney characters in their animated films, and you can actively hunt them? Those are the Easter eggs I am talking about, and I absolutely love when authors do that too.

Blog Tour: The Beauty of the Moment - Tanaz Bhathena

The Beauty of the Moment
Tanaz Bhathena
Genre: Young Adult, Contemporary, Romance
Publisher: Farrar, Straus & Giroux
Rating: 4 out of 5 stars
Susan is the new girl—she’s sharp and driven, and strives to meet her parents’ expectations of excellence. Malcolm is the bad boy—he started raising hell at age fifteen, after his mom died of cancer, and has had a reputation ever since.

Susan’s parents are on the verge of divorce. Malcolm’s dad is a known adulterer.

Susan hasn’t told anyone, but she wants to be an artist. Malcolm doesn’t know what he wants—until he meets her.

Love is messy and families are messier, but in spite of their burdens, Susan and Malcolm fall for each other. The ways they drift apart and come back together are testaments to family, culture, and being true to who you are.

Top Ten Tuesday: My Little Known Gems

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl. This week's topic is...

My Little Known Gems!

This week we are looking at books I LOVED that have less than 2,000 ratings on Goodreads. I apparently read off the beaten path, because many of my favorites fall into this category, however, I will be focusing on those I read in 2018, which I have not previously featured on my hidden gems post. I also noticed that I picked those books that clocked in between 4.5 - 5 stars, AND were written by authors I keep returning to for more.
